Mr & Mrs Lutteridge

The wedding we had was fan...tastic all down to their amazing wedding planner Sarah, she did a fantastic job of helping and supporting us through the whole process, I can imagine what we would have done without her. The staff are all so friendly and willing to help, the hotel is beautiful and the Spa is just what you need after a wedding. The whole events team went above and beyond and made our wedding so special, thank you for making our day perfect :) xx

Mr & Mrs Lambert

We had our wedding at this wonderful hotel! Right from the start of booking the experience was amazing! Sarah our wedding coordinator went above and beyond! Chris was the best master of ceremony we could have asked for! Totally perfect day!

Mr & Mrs Lawrence

We chose the Berystede for our Wedding haven't stopped smiling since. Everything was absolutely perfect, from planning with the excellent Sarah McLaren to the day itself with Chris as our Master of Ceremony and all-round Supreme Being. The day went off without a hitch and Chris literally could not have done more to make our day amazing. I have never met somebody who does their job with such attention to detail and he really made it the memorable occasion it was. The other staff were flawless too, and everything ran like clockwork.

The food was fantastic and was exactly the same standard as the trial we had. From the night before when we stayed at the hotel to leaving on the Sunday with a private breakfast for our friends and family, it was just too good for words.

I really can't thank you all enough for the best day of our lives and a wonderful way to kick off a marriage.

Mr & Mrs West

We would like to say a big thank you for all your help in making make sure that our special day ran smoothly. We would also like to thank the team on the day for everything that they did for us and our guests, we had such a fantastic day. Compliments to the chef also as everyone was talking about how good the food was especially the braised beef!

Mr & Mrs Miles

Thank you very much for everything you did, it was a lovely day, a good time was had by all!

Mr & Mrs McAllen

We just wanted to say thank you for everything you did to make the 21st August a day we will never forget. From the arrangements to the reassurances, the whole process was fantastic and we are both very grateful. We couldn't have hoped for a better venue and Mscdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa is a place that will always be special to us both.

Mr & Mrs Howes

On a whole we couldn't have asked for anything more for our day. It was perfect in every way and we truly believe that this was because of how organised and truly amazing Danielle and all her team are. We really cannot thank you enough!

Mr & Mrs Wilson

Just a short note to thank you and the staff at Macdonald Berystede Hotel for making The Special Day so special. Everybody we encountered could not have been more helpful and they all contributed to the feel good factor. Our particular thanks to Dannielle for all your hard work in the organisation.

Katy & Daniel Willcox

Everything about our big day was perfect and the whole day went by so smoothly!  I would recommend, in a heartbeat, Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa. It is the most amazing, fantastic, gorgeous and special venue to get married.


The staff were incredibly helpful from start to finish - from the planning process to on the day and beyond. We have had endless comments about how wonderful the food was and everything was seamless on the day. If we could do it over - we wouldn't change a thing. 

Mr & Mrs Nicholls

We recently got married at Macdonald Berystede and I cannot thank the team enough. 

Every single member of staff that worked on our wedding was unbelievable. Friendly, Helpful, Happy, Amazing, Fabulous. Everyone worked with so much passion and enthusiasm and they really do care which made our wedding the best day of our lives.

All of our guests were super impressed.  Thank you!

Mr & Mrs Baker

Sarah and the team were always at the end of the phone if I needed to ask anything or run anything past them. They were always so warm and friendly and they really know their hotel as I always got an answer quickly. You really felt that they cared about your wedding and you were not just a number.

We also had a wonderful experience during our menu tasting. The restaurant staff have excellent knowledge on the wines and they also understand their menu as well. The level of customer service in the restaurant was fantastic - it was just right for us, warm and friendly but extremely professional. We also met the chef as well and were able to change things around on the menu and also discuss the dietary requirements for our guests that had them. The private breakfast the next day was another fantastic bonus as we had over 130 people staying the night of the wedding so it would be great to have people in one place the next day as well.

Another bonus we loved was that we could bring all the stuff for the wedding down two days before and store it. We had bought gifts for our wedding party and Sarah made sure they were placed in their individual rooms for when they checked in. Its little things like this that made you realise they were trying to make your life easier! If we had to remember all this the day before, it would have been so much more stressful!

Being able to get ready in a huge room is a bonus and if the bridal suite is available you can have this straight away but I booked a suite anyway so would definitely recommend doing this. We had about 9 people in the room just before leaving and it didn't feel crowded at all. You don't see anyone as such at this point as we weren't getting married as such in the hotel but I just knew everything would be ok.

Upon returning to the hotel as a married couple! We were really impressed with the way everything was set up and run, it was so smooth and everyone had a good time. And the overwhelming impression was that the staff work really hard and take pride in what do and genuinely want you to have the best day. Lauren was FANTASTIC I cannot fault her, she was there when I needed her and blended into the background in order to deliver a wonderful wedding breakfast. Chris was also a great presence, directing people and helping our guests if they need anything. I cannot fault the staff.

There was nothing that I could have said needed to be improved when it came to the wedding breakfast and the same could be said for the evening reception as well. The room was changed around super swiftly and the beer festival as well as our photo was set up and the room looked brilliant when we re-entered for the evening reception. 

I didn't quite realise how tired I would be, but upon getting back to the room we were delighted to be greeted with a few pieces of wedding cake and a note from Lauren. This was a welcome treat to have with a cup of tea!

There is nothing I would say would have improved my wedding from a venue and service perspective, I could have made this review shorter but there were so many wonderful things that the hotel did I couldn't justify leaving them out. I was thrilled by the level of service and experience we had from the hotel as a whole, from the initial enquiry to checking out the morning after. The food was incredible, service was delightful and I had the best day.

If you are considering the Berystede for your wedding just do it - it's the type of hotel where you as a couple will be made to feel how you should be on your wedding day... the most important couple in the world.
